Replace your teeth with permanent dental implants with Dr. Khouly!
Are you missing teeth? A missing tooth can impact your bite function and even increase your chances of developing TMJ-associated disorders. Call us today to schedule your dental implant appointment.
A dental implant is a tiny, titanium screw that is placed into the area of the missing tooth. Over time, the jaw bone and gums will fuse with the dental implant to create a sturdy, artificial tooth root. Once this process is completed and your mouth has healed, you’ll be able to return to complete the process. We’ll attach a natural-looking crown to the dental implant, and your artificial tooth will be completely restored from the root up!
After undergoing this procedure, patients have reported that they regain the ability to eat and chew normally, and with a realistic-looking crown, your confidence can be restored as well. Placing a dental implant can revitalize your overall oral health. Without a dental implant, the other teeth along the gum line begin to shift to fill the space left behind by the missing tooth. Not only do dental implants protect your oral health, they can help preserve your self-confidence by providing you with a great solution for a beautiful smile!
Please contact us today to schedule a dental implant consultation with Dr. Khouly. We see patients from South Florida, including Miami-Dade, Fort-Lauderdale, and Boca Raton.
If you are ever faced with having a tooth extracted, you should consider your long-term recovery plans. It is important to preserve your tooth’s socket after it has been extracted. The moment a tooth is extracted, bone resorption begins, reducing the amount of bone you have in your jaw. Given enough time and bone loss, this can increase the costs of a dental implant, as additional procedures will be required. To avoid higher long-term costs and more office visits, you should ask about our bone preservation procedures when having a tooth extracted.
